Harry Cohen to Direct Balfour Ball;
Proceeds to Maintain Zionist House


A. C. Lappin, president of the
Zionist Organization of Detroit,
announces that Harry Cohen has
again agreed to head the Bal-
four Ball Committee.
Mr. Cohen, upon accepting
this assignment, declared: "I am
again undertaking this project
because I realize the important
place Zionism does and must
hold in the life of American
Jewry and in Israel. The Bal-
four Ball has greater signifi-
cance this year than ever before
because its proceeds will main-
tain the Zionist activities which
will be centered in the new
Zionist House, recently pur-
chased by the Detroit Zionist

It will also house the Detroit

Service for Israel."

Washington, Egypt
Reported in Deal
On Suez Blockade

(JTA Staff Correspondent)

(J A)—The Western Powers are
studying the question of how to
treat a scarcely-veiled threat
gently dropped in their laps at
the UN Security Council session
on Thursday by Egyptian dele-
gate Mahmoud Fawzi Bey.
Fawzi Bey's speech at the
opening of the Council meeting
to consider Israel's complaint
against the Egyptian blockade of
Israel-bound shipping at the
Suez Canal seemed to confirm
inspired reports that Egypt had
made a deal with Washington.
This deal reportedly provides
that Egypt would refrain from
raising the issue of Britain's al-
leged violations of the Suez
Canal Convention of 1888 and
the Anglo-Egyptian , Treaty of
1936 and would accept a mild
Council resolution expressing
"concern" over Cairo's ban on
Israel-bound cargo through the
Suez Canal—a resolution Egypt
could ignore if • Washington suc-
ceeds in persuading the British
to settle for such a mild, non-
mandatory resolution.
Informed observers here be-
lieve that Israel will once more
fail to get satisfaction from the
Security Council as a result of
the American drive to appease
the Arab world.
The Council heard a strong
plea by Israel delegate Abba
Eban for a speedy and positive
Council action ordering a stop
to ban on an "aggressive"
act against Israel.
Ambassador Eban assailed the
contention lately being made by
Egypt that Cairo was exercising
belligerent rights in a situation
where a "state of war" existed.
Pointing out in the first in-
stance that Egypt was pledged
under the Suez Canal Conven-
tion of 1888 to keep the water-
way "always free and open," he
went on to concentrate his at-
tack on the notion that a state
of \ war existed betWeen Egypt
and Israel.

Communist Paper Guilty

Of Libeling Ben-Gurion

TEL AVIV, (JTA) — A district
court found the Communist
newspaper Kol Haam guilty of
libel in depicting Premier David
Ben-Gurion as a "tool of Ameri-
can imperialism" and a traitor
to Israel's interests.
Judge B. Ginossar declared
that the defense had not proved
its assertion of Premier Bell-
Gurion's treason. He ordered
the editors to pay 150 pounds
($420) and to publish his deci-
sion and the sentence in three
